My best friend that did hair had an Andis and used it on her clients. She swore by it and her hair looked great. After a while it gets really hot and burns badly. I used to go in her room and it would smell like burnt hair. So for the long term .. ehh, maybe no? I have a Chi that i bought online for $65 two years ago. It still works REALLy good. Before that I had the Sally's Jilbere de Paris that I got pretty cheap. My spring on it broke so I have to get a new one. It works just like a Chi but is temperature controlled which is great. To me, a flat iron is a flat iron, it just depends on the hands that hold it. Go you a cheap one and master the techniques.

I reccommend Le Angelique Pro Ceramic flat iron. It has 100% solid ceramic plates & has temperature settings from 170 to 420. Amazon.com is where i bought mine for a total of 34.98! The plates are solid ceramic & not coated like most & it has a lifetime warranty. Hope this helps!

I've never used a flat iron on my natural hair. I only flat iron when I have a sew-in or a lace front.

Andis is the best inexpensive flat iron. I've had mine for 5 years and its still kicking although I no longer use it on myself. The "A" on one of the sides came off but it's fine and the ceramic plating hasn't chipped or anything. The one inch takes longer but better at getting to the roots! I graduated to a chi then to a sedu but if you have the time it'll be worth it just part in small sections and put it on about 15.

The best cheap flat iron I used was the Andis that I got at ulta. It did an amaing job but I only got one use out of it because it chipped like immediately. Haven't bought one since but I haven't forgotten the amazing results.

I bought my Cortex from Marshall's (Same as TJ Maxx or Winners) for $29.99. It is a 1" iron with 100% ceramic plates. It also came with a mini flat iron that is 1/4" I think. It is great and leaves my hair smooth and super silky. It goes up to 450 or 425 (sorry I can't remember). What I love about it is that it is 100% ceramic plates, not ceramic plate overlay. I had a Jilbre iron that was ceramic plate overlay and after having it for a few months the ceramic plate coating started to come off and burn into my hair as I flat ironed. So it left a nasty film on my hair. Dead Since my Cortex is 100% ceramic plates and NOT an overlay, I won't have that problem.

You can get some pretty good ones at Marshalls for 24.99. Also try Sally's. You can probably get a nice Revlon one for about 25 bucks

I've had my Andis iron for 2 years and I'm happy with it.  I would like to get the CHI eventually, but for now, this works fine.
